After reading all the glowing reviews on here I was a bit nervous that Vuyani could never live up to my high expectations - I was wrong, it exceeded them! The service & warmth of the staff is evident as soon as you arrive and continued throughout the whole stay. Every single member of staff was incredibly friendly and always keen to make sure we had everything we needed. The lodge itself is incredibly well presented & our room (the honeymoon sweet - which has it's own private decking with jacuzzi overlooking the bush) was easily the most luxurious room we've ever stayed in! All the guides who take you out on game drives have an unbelievable depth of knowledge about the animals, vegetation & birds so as well as seeing amazing things you also get to learn lots too. They are also very passionate & do a fantastic job tracking animals to make sure you see as much as possible. We were thrilled with all the animals we saw but it is worth saying that game drives vary massively - some days you'll go out & see rhino, cheetah & a herd of elephants (!!), other days might be very quiet. But, that's what you should expect - these are wild animals afterall! But, I think the quieter drives serve to show you the immense skill & patience it takes for the guides to track the animals & also makes it so much more exciting when you do spot your first lion or elephant etc! We ate like Kings & Queens during our stay - the food was always delicious & such a variety too. Another thing we loved about Vuyani is the small family atmosphere. There are only 14 guests staying at a time which means you get to know people really well, which added hugely to the enjoyment of our stay. We went to Kruger for the day while we were there & would highly recommend it. If you are looking for a safari then look no further - go to Vuyani!
